Hadn't been here for some years so it was a breath of fresh air to see the wonderful exhibition on the evolution of Wales. Fascinating and definitely worth seeing. I enjoyed it so much I am returning next week with my Grandson to see it all over again. May even visit the snakes next time too.
A great free museum in the centre of Cardiff. As well as containing plenty of great, permanent exhibitions (most notably natural history), there’s almost always a very interesting special exhibition on offer. Well worth spending a few hours here if you’re a Cardiff resident or visiting the city, and it’s situated in a great building really near the city centre.
